The Chocolate Farmer

Presented with The Power of Chocolate Festival

In an unspoiled corner of southern Belize, cacao farmer and father Eladio Pop manually works his plantation in the tradition of his Mayan ancestors: as a steward of the land. The film captures a year in the life of the Pop family as they struggle to preserve their values in a world that is dramatically changing around them. A lament for cultures lost, The Chocolate Farmer challenges our deeply held assumptions of progress. Directed by Rohan Fernando. Produced by Annette Clarke.

Saturday, March 28, 3:30 p.m.

FREE. No reservations required.
